Londonderry on the Tred Avon staff and residents participated in the second annual “Londonderry’s Got Talent” Show on Wednesday, April 18th. The much-anticipated event was held in the Londonderry Community Center with well over 100 residents and many family members in attendance.

“This is the most highly-anticipated event of the year,” said Irma Toce, Londonderry CEO and emcee for Londonderry’s Got Talent. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for everyone at Londonderry to learn more about each other, laugh together and poke a little fun at the aging process.”

This year’s talent show featured 12 individual and group acts. Attendees were treated to musical performances, book readings and acting performances to name a few. There were guest appearances from “celebrities” including “Willie Nelson” and the community favorite, “Minnie Pearl”. The famous “Bag Ladies” even made a special appearance.

Nancy Burns, a resident in the audience, said the event “was a wonderful time and very funny. We really enjoyed ourselves.”

Guest judges for the event were Rosemary Fasolo and Peter Markano from Pixel Print and Post in St. Michaels and Craig Stitcher from Bayside Lawn and Landscape in Easton.

The winner of this year’s talent show was George Wadelton for his rendition of “Memory” from the Broadway musical, Cats.

Cathy Cooper, Londonderry resident and performer, said, “As residents, we all have a role in this event. Some of us act, and some of us laugh and applaud. Whatever the role, it’s a great time to come together and celebrate our community.”
